(Portland, OR – December 9, 2021) Cascade Brewing has announced the upcoming releases of Honey Mile and Valley Flora in cans starting Thursday, December 9th.
Honey Mile features our sour rye ale aged in oak barrels and foudres for up to one year, then infused with dried chamomile flowers, local wildflower honey and fresh lemon zest. Like a cozy cup of chamomile tea, Honey Mile offers a delicate floral flavor, vivacious citrus aroma and a kiss of honey sweetness. Honey Mile is 5% ABV and will be available in limited draft kegs and 12 oz cans.
Valley Flora will now be available in 250 ml cans. Celebrating Northwest regional offerings of craft beer and wine, Valley Flora combines our sour red ale with Willamette Valley-grown Pinot Noir grapes using traditional brewing and winemaking techniques. Through native fruit fermentation and extended oak maturation, Valley Flora expresses notes of dark bramble fruit, plum, cherry, earth and oak supported by a balanced tannic structure and lively acidity. This project was previously only available on draft and in 500 ml glass bottles.
Honey Mile and Valley Flora cans will be available locally at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House at 939 SE Belmont Street and online at CascadeBrewing.shop for local pickup only. It will be made available through the brewery’s distribution network beginning December 9th. These cans are meant to be consumed fresh, not aged.
